Jethro Tull are currently streaming their 2nd single, “Sad City Sisters” from their upcoming The Zealot Gene album.
Frontman Ian Anderson explained on a press release the song’s meaning. “‘Sad City Sisters’ throws up memories of a Saturday night in Cardiff, Wales, when I was on my way home from our concert in St David’s Hall some years ago,” Anderson said. “It could equally well have been any town in the U.K., I suppose, or even most cities of the Western World. What possesses hell-bent and vulnerable young people to slip so easily into that tragic loss of dignity and end up sprawling drunk in a wet and windy street at midnight?”
The album will be the first one released under the name of Jethro Tull since the band’s 2003’s The Jethro Tull Christmas Album. Anderson, being the only classic-era member of the group, felt that it’s time to bury the hatchet and record something important for them.
“Shoshana Sleeping,” Jethro Tull’s first single for The Zealot Gene was evidently released last month, and the album will hit the stores next year, Jan. 28. Watch and listen to its Music video below.
